Noticing a lot of videos starting in web browser instead of fullscreen. Am I missing an option setting somewhere? For these, I have to move the mouse pointer to the fullscreen button on whatever video player is being used...

You have to plug in a mouse to go full screen or use the up/down/left/right buttons around the center button, but the movement is veeeery sloooow.

Team hopes to address this as things move forward with WebKit Browser.

You can do it with the dpad on the controller = it's just a bit awkward.

Premature post on my part.....

Also, for some sites, if you give the page a chance to load more or less completely, the mouse pointer will land on or not too far from where (Boxee thinks) the fullscreen link for the video is.

I'm a premature "full screener." :D

I have the same problem. Shouldn't Boxee load these fullscreen by default?

That was kind of my point - I know how to move the mouse pointer and click to make them full screen, but in the software version Boxee was automatically playing them that way.

Something changed - don't know what. In one of the other posts it was mentioned that all these UI changes that came with 1.0 were much more serious than cosmetic - some of them actually broke apps.

I'm going to enjoy what I can out of the box for a while, and hope that some of these issues are fixed before my 30-day return window with Amazon is up.
